An island feeling - beautiful apartment in Vouliagmeni, South Coast of Athens

Located in: Athens »
My property is a 62 square meters first floor apartment, near the Vouliagmeni square (3-4 minutes walking from the coast and organised beach), situated in a quiet and green area. It has recently been fully renovated and stylishly furnished, with a big balcony with comfy furniture and calming view over a huge green garden with pine-trees, and with a plenty more greenery and blossoming orange trees on the street in front of the apartment.

The apartment is fully equipped (see photos and detailed description on the website), Nespresso coffee machine and WiFi included. It is perfect for one person or a couple, as there is one bedroom, but can accommodate up to 4 people with the use of the sofa which becomes big and comfortable bed when needed.

Stylish and open area modern kitchen and big living room with huge SmartTV and calming colours and modern furniture; big balcony with the view into a beautiful garden, quietness, and close proximity to the beach and near by restaurants, bars, and coffee shops are only some of the highlights. The roads to get to the flat are partially moderately steep (the last 30-40 meters), which allows enjoying the beautiful sea view and sunset over the coast from the terrace of the building; however, this might not be ideal for people who are facing difficulties with walking e.g. older people.

The apartment is based on the south coast of Athens, in a beautiful and tranquil area of Vouliagmeni. I visit it few times per year, as my stay there refreshes me after months of very busy clinical and academic work in UK - it gives me the quietness and rest I need, with organised and recently modernised beach with beautiful shores and beach sports and activities, and plenty more hidden and less known small beaches and shores at my doorstep; also allows for active style holidays, with a wide range of water sports (waterski, windsurfing, diving, snorkelling, and sailing - with schools available in each category), swimming, cycling, gym facilities, amazing coastal scenery walks and run, all available in close proximity (5-10 minutes walking distance).

Important to mention are the well known and near by Vouliagmeni Lake (6-7 min walking distance) which maintains the temperature of 24 C all around the year, but also miles of long and incredible coastal scenery and clear blue waters. There is a plethora of near by restaurants, bars, coffee shops, funky clubs and pubs, bakery, supermarket, pharmacy, market for fresh fruits and vegetables, beauty and massage saloon, gym and general hospital; and sailing, water ski, diving and windsurf schools, paddle boating, tennis and beach volleyball, horse riding, cycling clubs, all at a walking distance of 5-10 minutes, and many of the near by open air live events like music concerts, open air cinema and theatre, and last but not least - fabulous shopping in the outlet based near the airport, and in the lively Glyfada area with its stylish and fashionable shops and bars area, check it out!

It takes about 30 minutes drive to the centre of Athens outside of peak hours, and about 20 - 25 minutes drive to the airport. There is plenty of choice regarding your transport if you are not that keen on walking, with high number of car rental companies and public transport in a way of buses, trams, metro and yellow taxi easily at reach - bus station (bus N122), and taxi station are 5 minutes walking distance from my apartment; additionally, there are online taxi companies available eg Uber and Beat (both use Apps so you would need to download them; Beat is Greek taxi App similar to Uber).

Additionally to Vouliagmeni and near by suburbs, there is the famous and buzzing Plaka, Thisio and Monastiraki square in Athens downtown, with its’ famous cosy tavernas, tiny streets and market, and of course - the world famous ancient site Acropolis. When more serenity is needed, you can visit the near by islands like Aegina, Tzia, Paros and Idra (all between 1-2 hours away from Athens - very nice ferry boat journey - from Pireas or Laurio), and plethora of other islands) there are about 2000 islands in total in Greece). And lastly, I would not want to forget to mention the near by ancient sites like Sunion (Poseidon Temple), and Delphi. So, there is a bit of everything, for everyone's taste - variety and fun at every corner!

This is why I love this area and my property! Wouldn't you too? It reminds me of beautiful island, with the perks of Athens downtown at easy reach, perfect blend!

I hope you will enjoy visiting south coast and Athens. I wish you great holidays and lasting memories!
